Helping to build community in our Town within a Forest


We connect town residents who need assistance with town residents who can provide it.

Sometimes you just need a little help. Are you under the weather but need something picked up at the pharmacy? Do you need a ride to a medical appointment? Would a meal or meals delivered to you help you recover from an illness?

Residents often find help they need via the town Yahoo listserv. But you can also contact us at WashingtonGroveCares@gmail.com or 240-813-3316. Additionally, we have online forms for requesting assistance:


We compile and share town residents' local recommendations.


We help to build a sense of community.  

We live in a neighborly town, but we can always do more to foster that togetherness. Washington Grove Cares is exploring ways to get folks together. In summer 2018, we arranged an inter-generational Instrument Petting Zoo, where musicians in town shared their love of music and their instruments with kids in Summer in the Parks. We're thinking of putting together a series of talks by town residents about their areas of expertise or passions. Watch for new developments, and send us your ideas for strengthening community.
